Alampur: Punjab Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal on Sunday blamed erstwhile Congress government for creating "regional imbalance" by ignoring border and Kandi areas of the state.

The border and Kandi areas of the state have lagged far behind than the other areas in terms of overall development and prosperity, Badal said.

Talking to media on the third day of Sangat Darshan programme in Dasuya Assembly seat, the Chief Minister said, "due to their vested interests the Congress leadership has totally neglected border and Kandi areas during their long regime."
